Join the team! Volunteer web editor needed

The Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter is looking for a web editor — someone who can update the website and add events, stories, action alerts and other items.
The commitment is only a few hours a month, but it makes a big difference to our communications efforts. Please contact monablaber@gmail.com if you’re interested.

Moderate hike to Giant Footprint Ruins

Beautiful hike near Jemez Springs to the top of the mesa. About 6-8 miles. The hike starts with a possible stream crossing and then a very steep climb of about 500 feet up an old road to the mesa top and then cross-country to the ruins. Great views from atop the mesa thru pine trees. Marcia Skillman, (505) 699-3008, marciaskillman@hotmail.com
